Minutes:

The Finance & Procurement Manager presented a report which sought approval for a corporate social value policy, to communicate the council’s approach to social value both internally and to external stakeholders.

 

The Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 required all public bodies to consider how they might improve the economic, social and environmental well being of their area when buying services above a certain value.  In the absence of a corporate social value policy, the council’s current process of achieving this was variable. 

 

The draft policy, attached as Annex 1 to the report, had been drawn up as an addition to the existing One Planet Council initiative.  It set out the council’s social value and inclusive growth priorities along with examples of how they could be achieved.  An action plan had also been developed to create the guidance, training and other processes required to implement the policy.

 

Resolved:  That the policy attached as Annex 1 to the report be approved.

 

Reason:     To ensure compliance with the Social Value Act and ensure that the council has a clear and consistent approach to the delivery of social value through procurement.
